Dr. Violetta Gianneta was born in Patras, Greece on October 25, 1978. She received the B.Sc. degree in physics and the M.S. degree in environmental studies from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2002 and 2005 respectively. She joined the Institute of Microelectronics of NCSR “Demokritos” in 2005, where she performed a PhD thesis in Microelectronics and nanotechnology, in collaboration with the Physics Department of the University of Patras, Greece. In 2009 she received a postdoctoral position at the same Institute of Microelectronics of NCSR Demokritos in the field of fabrication and characterization of nanostructured materials. She has important expertise and experience in the fabrication and characterization (electrical, structural) of porous materials, thin films, nanowires and other nanostructures on Si or other substrates and the fabrication and characterization of corresponding devices, including solar cells. The last two years she focused on the fabrication and characterization of Si-based photovoltaic devices. In this direction she has developed innovative and simple processes which lead to efficient devices. She has co-authored 11 publications in international journals and has 13 presentations in national and international conferences.
